After my regular pencil case for some reason just decided to disappear, I went a week or so before I realising that keeping all my pencils in my pocket just isn't the most practical (or coolest, for that sake) way of transporting my stuff to school. So, I made a new one. I had some problems with the zipper, as I never have made them curved before.



Sleeping.



Its belly



Awake!



You can see some of my schoolstuff in there.




The monster in its natural habitat.

What do you think?

That is just too cute - my boys would adore those!
Sigh.  More to be added to my to do list Grin
You did a great job.  You better keep an eye on it though - if your last one got legs and walked off that one certainly will.  Someone will think that they can get the 5 finger discount on something so cute!

That is so freakin cute! You could make it in any color for girls or boys or grown-ups (I would certainly use one).

My first thought was of my four-year-old nephew who wears glasses. With a little padding, this would be a perfect glasses case for a kid.

Really adorable!  I love his zipper teeth and button eyes. You had better be careful he doesn't walk off, he looks like a tricky sort of pencil case!  Great job!

Great work! Im not sure I would even attempt a U shape zipper! Good job ^____^

I agree with everyone else, make sure this one doesn't walk off... it even has legs!

Maybe you need to make him a collar?

Thank you so much everybody!  Grin
I have to say that I'm not the most skilled sewer in the universe yet, so the zipper was a real pain in the beh*nd. I worked on it for three days, while my homework just piled up into a cute little mountain beside my sewing machine. As you may see, the lining had to be stitched on in a kind of amateurish way, but it was the only way I could think of doing it then.

And yes I will definately make sure it doesn't run off Wink

1. I've been sewing for YEARS -- and I couldn't figure out how to do a U-shape zip in less time than you did.

2. "As you may see," --- no, we can't!  Grin All us sewists have these little glitches that only we can see. I say, if you can't notice it from a moving bus, it don't matter.

3. "kind of amateurish"  No way! you did a swell job. Give yourself credit! I will, when I swipe this design. Besides, only a dedicated artist would take 3 days.
